Freedom of Information (FOI)

The Freedom of Information (Scotland) Act 2002 was designed to promote a culture of openness and accountability amongst public sector bodies by providing people with access to the information held by them.

Any information can be requested under the Act. It’s important to mention that exemptions can apply, but we will only use these where it’s unavoidable. An example of this might be where information is of a commercially sensitive nature.

Creative Scotland has adopted the Scottish Information Commissioners Model Publication Scheme and has produced and published our Guide to Publication Scheme which details the information we make available in each of the Classes identified. Creative Scotland inherits the information of the two predecessor organisations and their information has been incorporated into this Guide.

If you have a request for information, please contact the Government Relations Officer:
